    Post laptop power switch

    the laptop is not in my trunk yet (just on the floor for now), but when it is, i don't want to have to run to the trunk every time i want to turn on the laptop. does anyone know of a good way to wire up an external on/off switch to a laptop?

    thanks,
    jeremy

    yes, it's called soldering. open it up, solder a couple wires onto the power switch, and run them to the front with a new switch.
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

    You want to know so damn bad that you resurrected a five year old thread?

    There's tons of threads about how to pull this off. Search for them before you dig up coprpes like this one.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    And then, 3 hours later, cause god knows he needs an answer right away, he started another thread.

    HOW TO TURN ON LAPTOP IF YOU CANT REACH BUTTON any input device that can turn it on?

    Lots of this goin on recently. People starting thread after thread about stuff already covered.
